Default Shipping on a bigass sub box?

What's it like? i've never shipped a box before, a subwoofer box. I am considering building a guy a box for 2 btls, or similar.

Few questions:
What is the avg weight for a big box you made(ported)? for 2 subs..and list the cubes.

What did it run you(per cubes/size) to ship it via UPS

and last, how do you ship? can you tell a guy inside to go around back or something? I have no clue, i mean do they even ship something like a 6-8 cube box?

lmk what you do?

Thanks..

I calculated shipping on my sub box. Idk how much it really weighs, but I figured 150lbs, at 30"x34"x16", and it was gonna be like $120 in shipping alone to California.

1. What kind of wood are you going to use?
2. Zip codes? (all determined by)
3. Companies you want to use.

[Just a couple details youd prolly want for those who help]

they will ship anything you want for the right price!! ive never shipped a box but had a couple 2 12 and 2 10 prefab ported with about 2-5 cubes and the shipping was only like 50 bucks at the most but they were also 1" mdf so if you use birch you can cut down on weight alot your best bet is figure out how much wood you need for what your building then find out how much that weighs and then just get your final dimensions and use the postage calculator it should be pretty damn close!!imo

UPS will only ship up to a certain size and then they will make you ship it freight. Also weight usually isn't an issue with boxes as they will charge you dimensional weight.

The largest box I've shipped was 6.75ft^3 net ported box and it was about $100 from NY to the midwest.

Make sure you do a good job packaging it beacuse UPS will try their hardest to mess it up.
